MyFreeTaxes is a virtual VITA program that helps people file their federal and state taxes for free while getting the assistance they need. United Way provides MyFreeTaxes nationwide in partnership with the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to help filers prepare their tax returns on their own or have their returns prepared for them for free.

MyFreeTaxes applies a no-wrong-door approach to ensure all users get connected to the free tax filing service they need and are eligible to receive. MyFreeTaxes ensures seamless access for all users to the free tax filing service they deserve. Here’s how MyFreeTaxes simplifies the filing process:

  • Remote Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) VITA: Majority of users choose this option, connecting with TaxSlayer FSA to independently file their returns using online software. Certified support specialists are available through MyFreeTaxes for any queries or assistance needed.
  • Full-Service VITA: Users not ready for self-filing can leverage MyFreeTaxes to connect with local and virtual VITA sites, receiving comprehensive assistance in preparing their returns.
  • Alternative Options: Users exceeding VITA income limits are seamlessly referred to alternative free tax software options, ensuring they can still file federal and state returns at no cost.

This inclusive approach allows partners to effortlessly refer users to MyFreeTaxes without the need for eligibility screening.
